Hillary gets the break she needed...

So Obama finally fucked up, and at the wrong time. In a time when Hillary is struggling to keep her campaign alive.

But what exactly happened?

In a conference in the great city of San Francisco, Obama said this about Pennsylvanian-Republicans,

"It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

So whats wrong with that? It seems as though it is a perfectly liberal thing to say. But, that is exactly the problem it is too liberal. In a time when the median-voter theory rules who gets a majority, this may alienate Obama from potential Obama-voters. Hillary is squeezing the life out of this event, she calls it "elitist." But, aside from the fact that Obama said this, can we make any further points from this? Maybe, What if he is arrogant like this in the White Houes? (Now I'm just playing the devil's advocate because these remarks don't bother me...hehe)

Anyway, who knows, maybe Hillary has a chance to make a comeback?

Let's wait and see....
